    EFI to Carb?

    I want to ditch the EFI and all of the wires that go with it. Wait...because of all the wires that go with it.

    Can I just use an intake/carb from a 351 cop car? I'm going to the junk yard and need to find a decent carb and intake setup. Any suggestions let me know.

    A 351 manifold wont work on a 302. I'd say try to find an early eighties mustang with a 4bbl in the yard and grab it. You may get lucky and find it has an aftermarket manifold too. You dont want a 351 cop cars VV carb tho...

            REALLY early Mustang/Cougar/Comet/Torino/ etc....... or boat. The 1982-1985 Mustang/Capri intakes are almost free on E-Bay.

                Use any small block (221, 255, 260, 289, 302) from 1962-1978. They should all be carb'd. Select models in various lines kept the carb, for the Ford/Merc Panther, it was up to '82 for a 302. Mustangs kept it up to '85 with 5-Speeds. Check T-Birds, Fairmonts, Grenadas, up to about '82ish you'll find a carb. And don't forget about F-Series, they had small-blocks available from '69+. Bronco's too. And the Mercury counterparts of the Ford Cars, there is a Capri (aka Mustang with funky rear window) in my local junkyard right now.

                And as far as carb's, you'll want to aviod any electronically controlled carb if you don't like wires. That means no Panther VV for you, so don't look for a carb under Panther hoods. But you could still find an intake.

                Of course, a Fairmont intake isn't going to win any races. Check eBay for used aluminum pieces, or buy one from someone on here. Just about everyone has one laying around left over from a project of some sort, including myself.
